📖 THE STORY
You are the Wizard's apprentice and he needs your help and only you have the skills to find the cure! Unfortunately, the solution lies inside of his workshop which has been rigged with traps to protect it from anyone who would use his powers for evil. Do you possess the skills to enter inside and discover the spell to save him?
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
The set design of the Wizard's workshop was great! There was so much detail in the décor displayed throughout the room. From spell books to potions to skeletons, we felt like customers browsing an apothecary shop!
There was plenty of space to spread out and search around. This game wasn't linear so a large team can easily divide and conquer.
All the puzzles pertained to the storyline and allowed us to continue without any derailment from the experience.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
As we progressed throughout the game, we anticipated a big "wow" ending finale but didn't feel we got that with this game. Since this is a magical themed game, we thought there would be a rewarding finish for saving the Wizard.
Certain parts of the props in the latter part of the game needed some updating. It didn't feel like the same quality as the previous room.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you are a "Harry Potter" or "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" fan, you'll love this game. There's something about "The Wizard's Apprentice" that transports to a magical world of spells and mystery.
